E is for Evening Wheezes / Envy

2bannerE

Evening Wheezes: false news, usually spread in evening halfpenny papers. 

Envy: Resentful desire of something possessed by another or others (but not limited to material possessions).

Why do people keep

gossiping apropos you,

now you’re far afield?

 

Ain’t it so biased?

cos you cannot contradict

their venomous tongues?

 

What if they were right?

If your love wasn’t only mine…

Nagging doubts stab me.

 

I felt murderous,

someone courting my beauty

while we lived as one.

 

Slander on the dead!

now, she´s neither his nor mine,

envy is futile.
